Quirky Question — Compartmentalizing

On the way to work today, I was listening to some radio sports yakker named Colin/The Herd, a Jim Rhome wannabe. He contended that women better men in all but two significant areas: strength and the ability to compartmentalize. While women squeeze everything into one big ballroom of the mind, The Herdmeister said, men can put things into different compartments. That's why a man can work successfully with someone he despises and get ahead, while most women can't get past their dislike for a particular fellow worker, he said. Successful women, he continued, think like men -- and compartmentalize.

Question: Is Colin all wet? Or is he onto something here?
